The singer said: & # 39; I have been a Taylor Swift fan for as long as I can remember. But it was only when I met her and got to know her that I understood how wonderful a person she really is.
& # 39; Taylor makes it easy for millions of people to make music. It all comes from her – her belief in magic and love, and her ability to be as honest and raw as possible. She is the master of putting the perfect amount of thoughts into not thinking, and that is why her music fits so well …
& # 39;[She] makes sure that someone older feels young again and everyone young believes that they can do everything. It is so rare and so special. If there is anything that I want to achieve in my career and life, it is that. & # 39;

Gray & # 39; s Anatomy-maker Shonda Rhimes said it was a career high to write about Sandra, who played on the show for two years. & # 39;
She said: & # 39; Sandra Oh is a virtuoso. She treats dialogues like musical notes – every word must be played, every syllable must be correctly displayed. She has always been an extraordinary actor. Her oeuvre makes that clear. & # 39;
Add: & # 39; Her comic timing is invaluable. Her dramatic source is endless. Her talent is a song to be heard. With her nuanced characters, Sandra Oh has chosen to fearlessly take up space in a universe that has not always made room for her.
& # 39; Now the power of her talented presence makes room for others. And that is a gift for every color painter who follows in her footsteps. & # 39;
Other names on the list are Lady Gaga, Brie Larson, Spike Lee, Emilia Clarke, Ariana Grande, Mahershala Ali, Glenn Close, Rami Malek and Chrissy Teigen.
Michelle Obama received a special mention from Beyoncé, who wrote: “Loving Michelle Obama was not a good choice. It was something that was obvious.
She went through: & # 39;[Obama] would have had an impact simply by being in the White House, the first African-American First Lady.
& # 39; But she also used her position of power to improve the world around her. It enables us all to question our fears and to surpass the greatness. & # 39;
